IN THE WINDOW: Saks Fifth Avenue’s windows look a bit like the American wing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art this week, thanks to Hickey Freeman. The men’s manufacturer has lent its original artwork collection — vintage illustrations believed to be by Maxfield Parrish — to the store until Oct. 18. “This is the very first time in the company’s history that this art collection has been on view to the public in over 100 years and there could no better location than Fifth Avenue at 50th Street, the Mecca of luxury retail,” Hickey’s creative director Joseph Abboud told the company’s employees last week. “These incredible pieces of art have all been reframed in a modern, classic style and matted with our signature cashmere fabrics.” The artwork, and 10 Hickey Freeman outfits, occupy the men’s windows on the north side of the store.
